Homes for Fishing Enthusiasts

Freshford Mill | 19 February 2016 |

At Freshford Mill we are building homes that encourage a connection to the beautiful surrounding nature. The site is situated in the peaceful and beautiful Cotswolds countryside on the River Frome, six miles south east of Bath. One of the many ways residents will be able to connect with nature here is by fishing. All residents at the development will have fishing rights, and the riverbank at Freshford Mill is the perfect place for keen resident anglers to drop their lines, with ...

… its abundant stocks of barbel, chubb, pike, roach, dace and perch!

Fishing has always been a popular sport in the UK, with millions of people participating in the sport each year. Ask any keen angler why they enjoy fishing and they are likely to point out that it’s a great stress reliever. Spending a few hours outdoors beside a river or lake can provide the perfect distraction from busy, modern lives. Those fishing at Freshford will be treated to particularly wonderful views extending up the Limpley Stoke Valley and the upper reaches of Freshford village and the rolling Cotswolds countryside beyond.

Fishing is also a very sociable activity, and a great way to connect with friends and family away from the distractions of modern technology. Many of the homes at Freshford Mill are family homes, and angling is a popular bonding activity for families as it provides physical activity for people of all abilities, including children and elderly grandparents.

The Freshford Mill development has its own island nature reserve which is another ideal spot for fishing. Residents have access to the island which is a great place to sit and enjoy the tranquil surroundings and for younger residents to learn more about nature.

Some of the homes at the development are situated right beside the river, making it possible to fish from the comfort of your own home. The residents at Ashe Barne, one of the larger family homes, will be able to fish from the comfort of their own deck overhanging the river. Similarly, residents at The Fulling Mill, which is being converted into four duplex apartments (prices from £522,000), all have private decking areas overlooking the river and island, from which residents can fish in the River Frome.

If you can picture yourself spending a relaxing afternoon fishing with family and friends on our island nature reserve, or even fancy dropping a line from your own private deck, then give our sales team a call to find out more about our beautiful homes.
